'Tracks in the Sand' invites to you explore a year in the life of the Fairbourne Railway on the Mid Wales coast which was originally created by McDougall of flour fame in 1895.

Integrating 1960's footage with digital video taken between 2005-2010, this DVD also explores the activities and beauty of the surrounding area and memories that the local community have of this historic Steam Railway, which has operated for over 100 years since 1895.

The interactive menu takes you behind the scenes and through a full working day on the Railway from firing the engines, explaining how they work, preparing the carriages for the passengers, and the activities of guards, volunteers and management.
